Don't eat it straight, it's too dry for that, but mixed into a pasta bake with sauce it was delightful, tasted like the real deal!
Not bad - But think outside...
From Jazz of Phoenix, Arizona on .
This is a pretty good ricotta sub. I have tried it as part of a white pizza (along with Follow Your Heart Mozz or Jack) and it tasted as expected.
Where it really stands out is as part of the Alfredo Sauce recipe(on the container) It makes a GREAT Alfredo Sauce that only takes a few minutes. I'll bet you can come up with other things to use it in besides lasagne.

Totally shocked this got any positive reviews at all. We never throw anything away and tossed the nearly full container of this stuff. Taste + consistency resembled wet chalk. *shudder*
remarkably same taste
From Candice Rose of staten island, New York on .
I don't know how they did it but it tastes just like ricotta cheese!
I will point out though,while it was excellent cooked on a pizza, I can see how it might not be great for canoli filling or perhaps even Italian cheesecake.
I will have to try baking it and submit another review because straight out of the container, it tastes like ricotta but seems gritty and drier than dairy ricotta.

Not bad, but not ricotta
From Christine of Montclair, New Jersey on .
I bought this after seeing it in the grocery store, and then seeing them use it on a local morning news program. First, the texture "raw" is nothing like ricotta I've ever seen - very dry and crumbly. The smell is strong, where ricotta is usually milder.
I used it in baked ziti, trying to use it similarly to how I make it for my husband, who eats dairy. It completely melted into the baked ziti, which was strange given how dry it was to start with. It doesn't hold its body at all through cooking. While it tastes pretty decent, I'm not sure I'd go out of my way to buy it again for this purpose. I can see other instances where this would work better (cannoli, for instance) where you don't expect the ricotta to have any body.
